The news of Dodgers’ one time top free agent target Liam Hendriks’ new contract with Chicago has the guys wondering if the offseason hot stove is finally ready to kick off in earnest.
With that, I make some bold-not-so-bold-but-bold-ish predictions for this week in the offseason. Predictions that involve free agents Justin Turner and DJ LeMahieu, and potentially Los Angeles.
Could this be the week the Dodgers and JT come together again on contract negotiations? He’s back home from a month-long vacation and undoubtedly feeling an even stronger connection to the team he grew up rooting for in the wake of Tommy Lasorda’s passing.
However, if not Turner, is DJ LeMahieu a true backup plan for Andrew Friedman? Don’t count on it. All this and laughing at the White Sox’s overpay for Liam Hendriks. No, seriously. It’s an overpay.
Another way to look at the Hendriks signing.
Treinen at $17.5 million is looking better and better! Andrew Friedman, you did it again. https://t.co/pukuy19LB6
